The Williams Family Seymour Branch of the Sevier County Public Library System has experienced tremendous growth in use and program attendance over the years. This growth has brought us to capacity use of our current 3,568 square foot facility. This community needs room to grow in an expanded library facility with state-of-the-art technology.
"Community" is the word that comes to mind when you look at the proposed plans for the new expanded Williams Family Branch Seymour Library. The new space will include"
1,500 square foot meeting room
Outside entrance with access to the kitchen and restrooms
Expanded areas for adults, children, and teens
Room for collections of materials
A central circulation area to provide quick, easy access for communication with library professionals
A state-of-the-art computer lab for visitors of all ages with an expansion of computer and technology classes
